Graphics, User Interfaces "Recently, Brendan and I have been arguing about what can reasonably be expected from a multi-monitor OS (among other graphical stack things). We've reached the conclusion that nothing replaces real-world user data. So anyone interested, please answer this survey about multi-monitor setups and expectations ! (Results will be published here once the amount of answers has reached a steady state, I'd say in a month at worst)" (Source)

Virtual desktops!

I find virtual desktops to be more productive than multiple displays. I can't work without since I discovered this function with BeOS ten years ago. I find very disturbing to have to move the head.
That said, I do have a backup 15" display on the side of my 23" at home, so I can read World of Warcraft's dungeon bosses strategy right when we fight them... 'cause to be invited in the party you always have to say "of course I know the strategy, I'm not a n00b!" ;-)
